: Horizon

The Human Animal
Can man really be compared to other animals? Over 10,000 species live in some kind of society, so is man unique? Ants co-operate to form armies and provide social services for the rising generations; baboons experience sexual strife and jealousy; marmots, like humans, may either be good or bad parents. Some scientists, who now call themselves Sociobiologists, have proposed the controversial view that man's social life can only be understood by considering recent insights into the social life of all animals.
Horizon examines some of these contentious ideas: Are we fundamentally selfish? Why are close relatives so important to us? Can biology explain the avoidance of incest? Can war between nation states ever be compared to animal aggression? And underlying all these questions: To what extent do our genes determine our social life?

: Leap in the Dark

The fourth in a series of six investigations into the paranormal. Introduced by Colin Wilson Undercurrents
Many of the most striking cases of ESP seem to take place at times of emotional stress.
This story of a family tragedy combines two elements - precognition and clairvoyant dowsing - that may perhaps have been triggered off by the anxiety and guilt of the four people involved.
Our film reconstructs the story against the background of the Rhineland city of Basle and the mountains of the Bernese Oberland and is introduced by the German parapsychologist Hans Bender who first discovered and researched it.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
